Calculate the velocity of neutron whose de Broglie wavelength is 500pm. The mass of the neutron is given in the table on the back of the text (1.674492716 x 10 -24 g)

Remember: 1 J = 1 kg m 2 /s2
(x) (mv) The Uncertainty Principle
−l ≤ ml≤ l.
Observing a graph of probabilities of finding an electron versus distance from the nucleus, we see that s orbitals possess n−1 nodes, or regions where there is 0 probability of finding an electron.
This is the way the electrons are distributed among the various orbitals in the atoms
Lowest possible energy state: ground state
Without restrictions all electrons will crowd in the ground state
Orbitals are filled with increasing energy with no than two electrons per orbital
(a)Write the electron configuration for phosphorus, element 15.
(b) How many unpaired electron does a phosphorus atom posses?
(c) What do you think are valence electrons?
How is this done?_________________________
e.g. Give an example here for Na
e.g. 1s2, 2s2, 2p6in Na
What are outer shell electrons?_________________________
e.g. 3s1in Na
Lanthanide [Xe] 6s2 5d1, Cerium [Xe] 6s2 5d1 4f1
Some irregularities occur when there are enough electrons to half-fill s and d orbitals on a given row.
For instance, the electron configuration for copper is
[Ar] 4s1 3d5
rather than the expected
[Ar] 4s2 3d4.
